Greetings, friends! I haven't written lately but that doesn't mean we haven't been busy! Our first snowfall of the season happened this week (a dusting, really, compared to other parts of the country), and the forecast is calling for seriously low temps, quite possibly below zero tomorrow night. Wow! That ought to be a real test for the first-year lavender "Phenomenal" that I planted last fall. Phenomenal lavender is known for excellent winter hardiness, so we will see.
I am so ready for spring! Aren't you? Excited to announce our second annual flower arranging class/party coming up in early May, just in time for Mother's Day! The date is Thursday, May 7 from 5 to 7 pm. Space is limited to 10 people and pre-registration is required. Typically the farm's peonies start blooming early May and there should be an abundance of other flowers to play with including some that may be locally sourced. Bring a friend (or mom!) and make your own bouquet. Wine and refreshments will be served featuring flower-themed recipes from the amazing book "Cooking with Flowers" by Miche Bacher. Interested? Need more info? Contact Alethea by email: info@HauserCreekFarm.com or phone: 336-706-3235. Thank you!
